You shouldn't have any problem on these platforms since they are
supposed to be
POSIX compliant. If you have any issue report it as bug.


I had problems when trying to build GnuTLS on both AIX and HP-UX, as
part of the Sage maths program. Though this was with a rather old
version of GnuTLS (2.2.1)

Here's the issue I had on AIX 5.3
Here's the issue I had on HP-UX 11.11B
(note I did report this HP-UX. I don't recall getting any feedback, but
I may have done).

As I can understand from the logs, the gnutls-serv and gnutls-cli
programs do not build. Does this affect you on using the library?


To be honest I don't know. I did not spend a lot of time on this, as I was only looking to see what components of Sage (there are about 100 of them) would build on AIX and HP-UX, and which would not. This was mainly to see the likelihood of porting Sage to those platforms.

At least in the version we use (2.2.1) there does not appear to be any configure options to disable the build of gnutls-serv and gnutls-cli. Is there in the latest?

If anyone wanted access to the AIX or HP-UX hardware for testing, I could provide it. But due to power consumption of these machines, they don't run 24/7, so it would have to be by arrangement, but I don't mind leaving them on a week or so. (The power bill is paid by me personally, as these are my own personal hardware in my house).
